sunday. pretty good forecast for that i'll show you in a minute. right now still windy. the top of the aramark building, flags are blowing, winds gusting still at 30 miles an hour in some spots. with those wind gusts it feels 10 degrees colder, feels like 26 degrees, but the actual temperature is what we look at when we talk about icing. 32 in allentown, freezing here. pottstown, same thing. trenton, poconos the mid-20s right now. philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs coming in right around the mid-30s, but south jersey and delaware, you shouldn't have to worry about any icing any time soon. the icy spots are mainly north and west. that's where you even see more snow moving in. we have another band of snow on the lighter side. any additional accumulation should be about less than an inch or so. so again not a lot of accumulation, but at this point on top of icy roads, the last thing you want is to layer snow on top of that. burks county, on top of the
poconos, we'll continue to see that through the overnight hours. new castle county, across all the major interstates and lighter snow there, but this really is not the end of this, the nor'easter is up around new england. we have snow coming down on the backside of this system in new york state moving through pennsylvania. not all of the snow will be moving in tonight. we'll see pieces of it. but still snow showers will stay in the forecast through tomorrow. so her's future weather for the overnight hours, still some snow + morning commute. some of us will be seeing snow showers mainly around philadelphia, best chance north and west, through the day tomorrow, still a chance of a few lingering snow showers and it's not really going to be until this entire nor'easter clears out by friday when we start to see drier conditions and that pretty much sets us up for a drier weekend. so finally we'll see things improving. for tonight, though, not so much with those areas of ice still in the forecast, 26 areas north and west, 30 philadelphia, still snow showers around, be very careful tomorrow morning
especially on the untreated roadways. windy and cold through the day tomorrow with still scattered snow showers for some of you. 37 to 40 for the high temperatures. so it will still be cold. as we go into the weekend, looks a lot better. as we go into sunday for the eagles game, looks a little better than that. temperatures by game time will be around 42 degrees, then by the fourth quarter we'll be in the mid-30s, but dry for the fans. the end of an era for the phillies, their longest tenured player has been traded. we'll hear from larry bowa as well as a former teammate. much more reaction on the j-roll trade next.

bowa managed j-roll and he knew he could be great. >> when i first saw him, i said you can be as good as you want to be. he definitely lived up to that. i don't think the phillies win the world series without jimmy as a shortstop. i believe the dodgers have a tremendous chance of going to the world series just by picking up jimmy rollins. >> he brought swagger to the phils. when he said they were the team to beat eight years ago, it started the greatest run in franchise history. >> you see that? champs baby. >> sometimes people question he wasn't a leader, he didn't do this. whenever there was a problem in the clubhouse, they came to jimmy and jimmy would go to coaches and management and handle that problem. >> his former teammate marlin anderson says his place in team history is secure. >> he's definitely top five, in my list he's a little bit higher than that. everybody will have their choices, but for me jimmy is one of the top two players to ever put on a uniform. >> the phillies have also traded
antonio bastardo for a minor leaguer. sixers making a deal. they traded brandon davies to the nets for andrei kirilenko who may not even play for the team. sixers in atlanta. they couldn't hang with the hawks in the second half. former sixer knocking down the three. sixers lose to the hawks,yón[ñ , they're 2-19.
really cold out there tonight. >> yes, cold and since those temperatures are dropping below freezing, we actually do have icy spots. and tomorrow morning still the same thing. areas of ice, snow showers overnight tonight, which will not be helping this mid-20s north and west philadelphia. tomorrow cold with snow showers throughout the day. temperatures will be topping out close to 40 degrees.
